The Asian and European sides of Istanbul will be connected with a cable car project that will extend Istanbul’s public transportation network throughout the city.
When the project realized, the cable cars will carry 6,000 people hourly and 100,000 people daily between Europe and Asia.
The cable car will be located between the Asian side’s Çamlıca Hill and the European side’s Etiler district and will cover two kilometers.
In addition to the new cable car, passengers will be able to pass onto “metrobus” stations that run between the two sides of Istanbul, forming a huge net of land transportation.
There are two cable cars in Istanbul at present, one in Eyüp’s Pierre Loti neighborhood and a second in Beşiktaş district’s Maçka neighborhood.
